Control your fermentation temperature accurately, every time with the Grainfather Glycol Chiller! Temperature control is one of the most crucial elements for producing a good quality beer. Temperature swings can cause yeast to stress out and throw off unwanted flavors that will negatively affect your beer. Keeping the fermentation temp regulated and stable throughout the whole process will ensure you get the right flavor profile. With the ability to individually power and control the temperature of up to four Grainfather Conical Fermenters, each with their own fermenting schedules, the Grainfather Glycol Chiller is the perfect addition to ensure superior fermenting results.
With a sleek and compact design, that still accommodates the full array of features, the Glycol Chiller maintains the Grainfather’s principle of providing quality home brewing equipment, that delivers craft brewery like results, with a small footprint.
With the addition of the Glycol Chiller, your system is operating at the ultimate level and you are even able to cold crash and lager down to 39-43°F (4-6ºC). The Glycol Chiller connects to a hidden cooling sleeve, located in between the two stainless steel walls of the Conical Fermenter. Your desired temperature is dialed into the digital temperature controller on the Conical Fermenter, the liquid then travels through this sleeve, cooling the stainless steel which in turn cools the beer in the fermenter. The cooling sleeve never comes into contact with the beer, is completely concealed and does not need cleaning or sanitizing - a true innovation for a fermenter on this scale.
Allows you to cold crash 23 L (6 US Gal) of wort to as low as 4-6ºC (39-43°F). Minimum temperature will vary based on external factors such as ambient room temperature, the number of fermenters connected and other environmental conditions. Cools and powers up to 4 Conical Fermenters at different temperatures and fermenting schedules.
